DBGM is a three-in-one project:
- a documentary "You Are Not Alone", in which Black gay men are breaking a taboo and speaking out about their depression, how they coped and survived;
- a book (currently being written) in which Black gay men share stories of their struggle and suffering with depression; and
- community discussion forums which serve to raise awareness of depression in Black gay men who are empowered to rebuild their self esteem, boost their confidence and develop trust, to reach out for help, so as to heal, realize and achieve their potential in life.
A Black gay man dealing with depression should know that it is treatable and he need not suffer in silence; he is not alone."
